Rock / Pop Remote Mixing

Ben Gir on SoundBetter

I'm a mixing engineer specialized in Rock, Pop and Blues productions. I received a Bronze award from the Audio Engineering Society, top of the class from Abbey Road Institute and opened my own studio (Radix Studio) in 2020 after 20 years of experience in studios and home studios.

I've played in rock and indie bands for twenty years and I've always been the "sound engineer" of the band: recording, mixing.

I graduated from Abbey Road Institute Paris (head of the class) recently and received a "Bronze Award" from the Audio Engineering Society.
I'm working in my own studio ( with Protools or Logic Pro, on an SSL hybrid console (AWS), with a wide set of carefully selected outboard equipment (M6000 reverb, Lexicon, MCI channel strips, Drawmer 1960...) and plugins.

What I love in my job is to work closely with a band and help them reach to sound they're expecting. By experience, I know how frustrating a bad mix on a nice song can be!

Interview with Ben Gir

  1. Q: What do you bring to a song?

  2. A: Enjoyment!

  3. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  4. A: The studio is built around an Solid State Logic AWS console and a pair of Genelec 1031A monitors. My go-to reverb is the TC Electronic M6000 and I love my Lexicon on vocals (the famous Chambers preset !). When I need some crush on the vocals, I tend to use my DIYRE Colour modules. My Drawmer 1960 is pretty cool on bass tracks, it adds some subtle tube saturation which helps the instrument to properly "fit in the mix". Sometime, at the end of th day, you realize that the mix sounds good but i maybe "too clean". In that case I use my two MCI JH6000 Channel strips to add some coloration.

Terms Of Service

Usually, bands send me first their tracks, so that we can make sure all takes are fine before starting the mix process and some reference tracks for the mix result.
